i'm not certain if it's your title or the image itself that is so very moving. perhaps the two together. beautiful, jm.
I remember this place. It's the church that is sort of crumbling. I like this shot of the lone man taking in the scene around him.
I hope he's praying for me.
Your caption says the man is lonely, but I hope that in church he does not feel alone.
Such sombre colouring, goes with the lonely man.
It's a very good work!Clever perspective SaludosMaia
What an amazing image JM, these church walls look ancient, it's such a huge space. I wonder how old this church is?
@Birdman: Actually I don't know if he's praying or just checking his mobile phone... :-)))
Nice shot. The lone man gives it more ambiance. We should write a story about him. A mystery perhaps?
Lovely shot. He doesn't seem lonely though - just alone with his thoughts.
What a superb capture/composition! It does look so very, very old! Coming from such a relatively young country, I've always been fascinated by the ancient buildings I visited when I lived in Europe. I loved it! I think you're probably right about the mobile phone -- they show up everywhere these days -- new form of prayer??? Have a great evening, JM!Sylvia
Absolutely love the colors
Uma igreja de aspecto bem rústico. Talvez a mais rústica que eu conheça.
What an image, JM. In Portugal, even crumbling churches are marvelous.
This is a lovely photo JM, such a nice mood.
This photo is a winner. Bravo, JM. Old walls, solitude, faith, great composition.
He looks so peaceful...
This church looks massive, wow! And I had to read about its story on your other post, so much destruction and reconstruction, breathtaking!God bless you!Cezar
Super image in terms of subject, composition, exposure, etc.Lots of things I could say about this lonely soul, but I think you know them already! I do remember this church from a previous post ... It is magnificent in it's decay!
Yeah, now that you mention it, it looks more like he is checking his phone.
I looked at your other posts about this building. It is macabre to me, that the stonework was left as-is in the last restoration. It would be like worshiping in a tomb...but maybe that's the point.
OMG that was me at the basilica today. This is such a beautiful photograph.
Maybe he is happy to be alone with his prayers! (I would be lonely if I were in his place.)
Que bella imagen. Buenísima. Saludos.-
Beautiful shot. Sydney - City and Suburbs
Linda composição! Parece ser uma grande igreja. Mais fotos?Gosto da atmosfera de paz que há nas igrejas! ***Bjos e feliz dia****
I ditto Birdman. :-D But no, I'd not assume he is lonely. Lone, yes. Still, his presence adds a personal touch and scale to your image of this colossal old church.
